About this vacancy

Are you able to juggle a variety of tasks and work in a dynamic environment, liaising with senior management, (investment) specialists, auditors, and other stakeholders? Do you like an intellectual puzzle and analysing complex processes? Then you must seize this opportunity! For Robeco, we are looking for an Operational Risk Manager (Incident Management).

Job description

As Operational Risk Manager (Incident Manager), you are responsible for the execution of the incident management process. You perform deep dive incident analyses and report these to the management. You represent the Operational Risk Management team in Incident Management meetings/committees.

  • You deliver incident reports for management
  • You develop incident management training/awareness activities
  • You participate in ad-hoc projects

You will be part of a team of 10 ambitious and highly skilled risk specialists. Team members have distinct areas of expertise and responsibility and can work independently. At the same time, however, the breadth of Robeco’s activities and the relatively small size of the team require teamwork with team members functioning as each other’s backup. The ORM department is divided into three sub-teams: Risk Monitoring, Control & Assurance, and Incident Management. This vacancy is in the Incident Management team.
